I was cheated by a buyer that eBay backed even though it was obvious from the buyer's emails that he was lying.

I was an occasional seller, not a regular, high volume merchant, and when I sell, it has been a one of a kind item, an antique, or as several sales, vintage motorcycles that I rebuilt. I sold an antique to a buyer who immediately claimed that it was not authentic but added that he would buy it at a reduced price, anyway. He made a claim, I argued against it.

Paypal released the funds to me and I thought it was the end of the issue. I went out of town on a business trip and was rural so I couldn't see emails. EBay conducted a "review" and gave me two days to respond. I was not there to respond so they awarded a refund to the buyer. I tried to communicate with eBay and object but they repeatedly refused to accept my proofs and I had many, including authentication of the item by an online dealer via good photos of the item.

EBay rep claimed that antiques cannot be authenticated online, which is not true, even the Antique Road Show has an online service. Every eBay service rep I talked to via email asserted that after the decision is made, it cannot be reversed even though they engaged me in email conversations about it and lied on several occasions including the above regarding authenticating antiques. The reps were also obviously limited in diplomacy and practiced in lying in order to deflect factual confrontations on a juvenile level, it was that obvious.

It has remained there. I refuse to pay eBay a refund of the money I first received in payment and they have sent their collection agency after me. I have written them a certified letter informing them that I will take the matter to a specialty attorney group if they persist.

I have not heard anything for a while, but eBay continues to pile on late charges. I may seek to initiate a lawsuit against eBay. I hope there is cause for class action. I am sure this has happened to others.

All stores online or mortar and brick have issues. I have been a buyer and seller on Ebay for years. Considering the times I have bought and sold I am not dissatisfied. When dealing with the volume of transactions Ebay does there are bound to be unhappy people. As in any sales venue it is up to the buyer to be alert, the seller also.

This takes time and work and most folks aren't willing until it affects them personally. Early on I paid attention and as a seller I continue to learn, that's how I came across this site. Be alert and follow rules, that how I roll. It's as if you didn't read my story. And you offer no advice, just a brag that you follow the rules and imply that I must not have. I have bought and occasionally sold on for years myself.

Ebay has policies that favor the buyer and also has policies that aren't as flexible as they ought to be. Aside from that, outright lying to me on the phone about the fact of online antique authentication is not a good business practice and legally challengeable. I kept the emails and can show Ebay's liability. I have warned the collection agency and they have backed off. My next move is for a class action.

One was started a few years back in SF, but the outcome is unclear. I will probably try to join it or engage the attorney in a new one. No Ebay user should have to be forced to accept a cheating party, ever. Volume sellers have said that they accept being cheated by a buyer once in a while as part of doing business. I was a seller once in a while and sold expensive antiques.

When you get cheated by a buyer of a one of a kind thing, then talk to me. Otherwise, if you haven't got helpful advice for getting better solutions from Ebay in problem cases, know that no one needs to hear how proper you are. Please let me know if you file a class action suit as I will gladly join. I state all over my posts its an empty box. I got scammed by a buyer. I finally got eBay to give me a refund via the BBB, but this buyer has continued to do the same scam to more than half a dozen people that I know of for sure in the short space of less than two months and eBay has not shut the buyer down.

This buyer had a different account that eBay did shut down before the account they scammed me under. The scam they used was not listed above but it is one that eBay facilitates openly. The buyer buys something and when they receive it they open a return request claiming the item arrived damaged. I had read the buyer's feedback after the return had been opened and I saw that other sellers had claimed fraud, so I saw what was coming and I refused the return. The buyer escalated the return to a case against me and eBay's system automatically approved the return and sent her a return label at my expenses well as put a defect on my account.

When the return package arrived it was EMPTY but delivery confirmation showed it as delivered so eBay gave the buyer their full out of my Pay Pal account. I appealed as well as reported the buyer for abuse of the returns policy but eBay upheld their decision saying there was no way to prove the empty package was the buyer's fault and that it was a matter for my local law enforcement not eBay.

So, this buyer just keeps on doing this, I watch helplessly as more and more feedbacks from sellers pile up on this scammers account telling of the same sad story, forced a return but sent empty return package getting away with the item and the money. I understand protecting buyers, but this is ridiculous, when multiple sellers are reporting this kind of fraud eBay needs to shut down the buyer.

They say they protect buyers to keep them shopping on eBay, but by not protecting sellers some will walk and hence lowers sales. All I can say is shame on eBay.

I wish there was another truly viable market place for me to sell my items so I could walk away from eBay. I have been a regular ebay buyer since On a recent printer purchase something new happened. The seller sold the item as "used" explaining in great detail in the description of what the printer could and could not do. I agreed and purchased. On several subsequent emails, the seller demanded I acknowledge that this was a "parts only" sale.

When I did not, the seller cancelled the transaction. I contacted ebay and they are in complete agreement with the seller. I made out alright because I was not willing to fall for it. Mind you, it wasn't till I spoke to the third representative from ebay, that I was told after sale emails will over-ride the item description and are the final say if you agree. Beware of sellers that need to "clarify" things before shipping. They are looking for a loophole to sell you something that in fact most likely is SNAD significantly not as described and make you get stuck with it.

The only clarification ever necessary is an accurate an honest item description, anything else is an attempt at fraud. I added invoice at attach. When I bought it. I wrote note to seller. We are living Canada and we are using volt electric system. Please if you doesn't have to volt don't sent to me. The seller sent to me and wrong items. I back to eBay i told them. They told to me. You have to contact with the seller. I call eBay customer service and i explained my status.

They contact with seller and the seller accept the return but they told me you will pay shipping cost to England. I said why I am paying shipping cost in my pocket. So the seller emails coming again a few days later.

I call back to eBay I explained again. They told me you have to be contact with seller I said all complain they are backing late 2 different person writing different things. After that I contact to with eBay I got address. I will ask the warehouse to check with neighbours to see if they received the parcel. You are an idiot. It's not the sellers responsibility to make sure you buy the right item. This is on you. Shop the right way next time. Sorry you have to contact before purchase.

We dont have to read the notes sent or even acknowledge them. Thats like if i sent you a note saying on second hand the item is actually broken and ill be sending it anyway. Seller opens an Ebay account, and offers something at a reasonable, but not illogical price saw it cheaper on Amazon during Prime Day. I purchased the item. Shipper looks into it, and calls me back to inform me that the buyer on the invoice and owner of credit card used did not make this purchase.

Later that night, after contacting the Ebay seller demanding a tracking number for the item I purchased, the number I was given was the aforementioned package that I had received, and was ready to ship back. So, basically, these sellers are setting up accounts on Ebay, selling items to you, then purchasing the items with stolen credit card information to have it shipped to the buyer.

Once it's shipped, and an Ebay buyer who may not be as suspicious of the invoice, assuming there is one , will leave them positive feedback, and PayPal will release the funds to them. Another one I was hit with: If you're a buyer, you have nothing to worry about; eBay will fully back your purchase with their money back guarantee if things go south If you're a seller, you're basically at the mercy of the buyer and you just have to pray that your buyer is an honest, decent human being.

But unfortunately, this is eBay, so that is a bit too much to ask. Buyer buys item, fraudulently files an item significantly not as described refund request which automatically requires the seller to pay for the return shipping, buyer swaps item with a broken one or salvage for parts.

I say to hell with that. I hope eBay realize that without sellers, there wouldn't be any products to list and thus no revenue for eBay. I found this out earlier this year.

I have a standoff with eBay's collection agency now. They released the buyer's payment to me and then reversed it while I was absent due to a new request by the buyer to review the case. I would not refund and cut off Paypal from my bank to prevent the grab. I've replied to the agency via certified mail that I will go to a law group if they persist.

Still waiting to see, but I may go ahead with action anyway. There must be enough people with similar histories for a class action lawsuit against eBay. Sellers offer free shipping for an item. It shows up in Search when you specify Free Shipping.

Because they offer it, you can't give them fewer than 5 stars for shipping cost in feedback. BUT - when it shows up in your Purchase History, high shipping costs have been added in the invoice.

Ebay could prevent this easily by making it impossible to add postage to a "free shipping" item on the invoice page. Free shipping is a scam. There is no such thing as Free shipping. You'll be leaving their facility with your box. The cost of shipping is always rolled into the product cost which is BAD for you as a buyer. Because if you ever buy more than one item it is impossible to combine shipping since that shipping cost is rolled into product cost. The highest cost based on distance is also the amount that is rolled in so that you don't lose money on shipping to buyers that are further away, so people closer are paying way more than the guy that's on the edge of the earth.

We sellers love when you buy more than one item, we get all that extra money rolled into the shipping cost. Most of my buyers are not idiots though and they shop by total price, so I charge shipping and offer combined so they can actually save some money. That is why I charge shipping on the sheet music I sell in my eBay store, with free shipping only for additional ones. I pay the extra cost. Otherwise, people who buy more than one would be paying too much.

Another fun fact ebay buyer protection no longer covers you for any seller who has less than 20 positive feedback.

I personally bought 5 items from sellers with under 20 positive seller feedback, I was told on the phone and via email, they do not cover anyone with that low amount of feedback no matter what the item is. Wait, so if they seller never ships an item ebay can't help even though they're below 20 positive reviews?

I don't think this is right. The OP will never back up his statement that there is no buyer protection for purchases from sellers with less than 20 feedback because it's an absolute lie. Who know's why people make this shit up, but the OP is one of those people.

Some idiot REP lied to you. New sellers with less than 20 feedback would be the sweet spot for a thieving scammer.

Ebay wouldn't leave buyers hanging on protection for low feedback sellers, they are the most likely to be new scammers. Post the email, you're bullshitting everyone.

Post the email or it didn't happen. Than you cannot talk to them, not even email, i tried to put negative feedback, even thats not working, its One day in I ordered a new iPhone 5 it said it would com in a week but but it actually came in two weeks,but when it came it was fake!

So file your SNAD and follow the instructions to get your money back and don't waste time looking for anything of value on ebay again. With the ease at which a buyer can steal your merchandise on that site now, you won't find anything of real value on ebay soon enough.

You're probably shit out of luck though because I'll put money on you buying that phone from china because you bought based on lowest cost despite any red flags because that's how cheap people shop. One time in I ordered a iPhone 5 it said it would be there in a week and it came in two weeks but when it came it was fake!

Always be aware of Ebay Scams!!! A scam I encountered and want everyone to not fall for this: The seller qualityzoneonline repeatedly asked me to wait a few days more on the shipment and also claim a second shipment has been sent and still nothing. PayPal investigated and found the tracking is not valid or have no activity.

They also ask me to check my address and my post office. Contacting eBay pass their 30 day limit is almost of no use and no negative feedback can be left.

Bottom line, don't buy anything that can't be delivered in weeks. It's a scam they're running where they will scam a small amount of buyers just to keep a good rating to make up for the low price they offer. That has happened to me as well. And never will I wait past any time. Infact so sick of these scams after being on ebay since I am closing my account. So I was recently selling a laptop on ebay and I got this text from someone saying they wanted to purchase it immediately.

I was a bit surprised because they offered me more than what I was asking for. The strange thing was that they wanted it shipped to Africa. I asked them why there and they said she was on a business trip. Then they asked that I send it out as soon as possible. I said it would have to wait and they never replied. This will deter scammer away from buying your product and scamming you!

That disclaimer will not protect you in any way shape or form. It's almost taunting a fraud buyer to mess with you. The latest scam is I purchased a tablet from someone on ebay.

They never sent it, never posted a tracking number. Finally when I put a case out, they posted a tracking number and attached it to my purchase. The item said it was delivered on my account, but it was not. I called UPS only to find that an envelope the tracking slip said it weighed 1 ounce to a business address in my zip code area.

On the envelope it said "Surprise! They kept telling me it was mailed. A computer weighs more than 1 ounce last time I checked. I got my monet back, but this opens up a whole other realm of BS on ebay. Dear buyers beware of requests from sellers asking you to pay on PayPal but put payment down as a gift so they don't have to pay income tax.

This is the scam you will never receive the item you purchased and the gift request is not refundable by PayPal only refunds for goods purchased. Putting "gift" on an international package does not exempt them from "Income Taxes", it has absolutely nothing at all to do with income tax. YOU are supposed to pay the income tax on that item because you made the income!

They want that to avoid paying Tax or Duty fees at customs when the package is imported into their country. This doesn't effect your protection.

Your package most likely didn't have any tracking on it passed customs. If the buyer filed INR and you had no tracking, you lose the case. What you put as the contents would have no bearing on that at all.

That leaves an Unauthorized Use chargeback that would be won by providing a tracking number that just shows transit, no need for delivery. We went outside of eBay and sure enough, as soon as they received the item they used the exact same wording and phrasing as this article mentions. However, I made payment via PayPal, so I actually sent his complaint straight to them with a copy of the original listing and copies of the emails and texts we had exchanged and they sided with me and backed me regarding his threats.

I never had to refund him his money. So if you do decide to go outside of eBay, there should be a little comfort knowing PayPal can make their own judgments. I just had a scan ebay email telling me they haven't heard from me in awhile. They wanted to update my account. I trashe'd that fake one so fast.

Sadly, this scam is a little harder to avoid. You have two options. One, you can require your buyers to purchase shipping insurance to protect yourself against this kind of thing.

I sold like new microphone and put no refunds. Buyer said it wasn't working and was lying. He stated cable didn't come with it. I never said cable included. This is what he said. Then he said since my microphone doesn't work he wants refund. After I had to open investigation eBay finally refunded me for the purchase! I said no refunds and eBay first didn't care. Until I called and complained and showed pics of microphone and stated buyer didn't even TEST microphone as he stated he bought new one at Best Buy.

So even IF you put No Refunds it's a battle Yes the new ebay terms of service do not allow you to list with no refunds, Even tho it is an option they do not allow it, I have gotten over a dozen refunds from buyers who list as no returns or refunds, The only way to avoid the scam with damage is list the posting, Item As Is, Never! That won't protect you either. You could list used underwear and the buyer could complain there's a hole in it and you'd still lose the case.

Their buyer protection is on all items, not just new. Refund due to damaged box. Supervisor told me I didn't list every imperfection on box before she hung up on me. They gave you a courtesy refund to shut you up. It sounds like they didn't make that clear. Just in case you are open to learning about ebay, No Returns does not apply when the buyer claims damage to an item weather they are telling the truth or not.

Once that is filed, not only are you taking returns, you're paying for the shipping to return the package to you if you want it back. They'll claim it's a cost of doing business. Guaranteed they gave you a "courtesy adjustment". Then the 'where my stuff' emails start flag 4 - shock and awe. Here is where they want you to argue or make promises they can then hold you to later dont bite. Then they state their hardships, what theve gone through ect..

I just got scammed from a buyer who insisted he needed the email I use with my PayPal account in order to transfer the funds. Then, he started sending me false PayPal emails good forgeries which said that the funds had been received and I was clear to send the item.

More than 24 hours after I inputted the tracking number into the eBay mobile app, eBay tells me that the sale has been cancelled due to suspicious activity. For me, it was paymentservices.

Nowhere on the site can I find a method of contact without inputting my item ID number and they've totally deleted all record of the sale. I will never use eBay again, even as a buyer since they have no interest in protecting users or maintaining any level of professionalism.

And there are articles on how eBay has shut down all avenues of contacting customer service. I suppose I will be going through PayPal's complaint department now since I now find PayPal untrustworthy for partnering on such a huge scale with a now-disreputable platform. And don't promise 1 day handling time because that put me against the gun as I was trying to fit things in between my work schedule and didn't make the time to thoroughly go over these things.

This is an old scam, it's called "Phishing" and you fell for it. It's not ebay nor Paypals fault that you fell for a scam where the scammer contacted you directly and you fell for their email. Next time, log into your paypal account to make sure that the payment is even there. Maybe you don't have to bother since you take no responsibility at all for this and place all blame on other parties. We have sold the same game code 3 times this week and all three have been scams. Thank God my husband did not give the code through ebay messages or we would be out the money for the code.

All three have asked us to send them the codes through email, and when my husband answers No, suddenly the account has been reported hacked. It's shown on eBay often enough: A video game loose and with all its items shown - just no shrink wrap. How about bulk a refurbished laptop from a licenced dealer and tech fir hp and Microsoft and when I open the box they are paying waiting in the computer and proceed to drain me slowly abs screw with my life ever so slowly. The real fun didn't really kick into gear until the return window was gonever and passed.

Then the real fun began. Is neb a nightmare a dang near undetectable Trojan worm hacker nightmare. Even paid versions of high dollar malware and root removers couldn't touch them. I thought I was losing my mind. It's still in the balance.

Trying to get my home work done trying to watch what they are doing so I can gain my life back. Phone harassment corrupted files register errors but I look is ask running fine according to my house and Microsoft crew of hackers I man tech support. It's been a real eye opener. I've learned more than I ever cared to about this subject the last year. I just got scammed from a user who claimed my item was faulty.

It certainly was not, but eBay sided with the seller. The eBay rep was really rude over the phone. It was honestly shocking. I will never use eBay gain, except to buy. Buyers are coveted like the last slice of cake at a birthday party. I hope these kinds of scams end soon, because this one hit me pretty hard. I sold a lens. I tested it fully. I should of known something was suspicious as even before I shipped it this buyer kept telling me I will be hearing from him soon I also sold it as is even though I fully tested it and used it myself The seller contact me and told me it was defective.

I tested this just before packaging! I said I will pay for it to be shipped back for me and the full refund! He said hell no. He told me EBay now says it belongs to him and he gets a full refund of everything. And I am ending my account with them. Since ebay now also has their offices outside of north america for customer service they can keep their service.

Their commision is overly priced as well! They set up their service to help out the scammers. Someone is using an eBay motor account and trying to get u to buy a really nice car for cheap. Telling you to buy a iTunes card to pay. Don't fall for it. I'm glad I found out before they got my money. I am thankful for the information. I take immediate photos of every item in the box on the scale before sealing it.

I'm not saying I won't run into a scammer because I will but I haven't yet. Lol read over ebays new terms of service, NO REFUNDS is no longer allowed along with all sellers must pay return shipping, So being a seller you get to pay to send the item and pay just to get it back, In shipping cost alone you could pay the value of an item.

I recently tried to buy a mini Nintendo classic edtion on ebay for I never got an email from ebay saying why the listing was removed. I suspect the other person that bought one paid for it and then the listing was removed. I messaged him asking what happened and no response from him anymore. It's missing one that I have been the victim of. This way, when you report you didn't receive it, eBay simply favors the seller as it shows "delivered to your city".

You need to prove from the post office that it actually went to a different address which is not easy in itself. Please report this buyer also to ebay. Be aware of this scam buyer. Michael Kornoff Buyer's email: Ebay and paypal are crooks. Stick with local Craigslist cash only, face to face. Buyer bought high value item, claims immediately that item is not as described, tried to extort money from me but asking for partial refund - to get item even cheaper.

I refuse and ask her to return in 3 days and receive a full refund. She stalls says needs more time. I remind her I have no return policy.

She says, that doesn't count with not as described. She opened case, ebay ask her to return item but gives her 2 weeks to do so. She returns a fake item, in an amazon box with amazon prime tape? Ebay sees tracking as delivered and debits paypal account. I spend hours and weeks fighting for seller protection.

Ebay says you lose, buyer wins. Avoid ebay and paypal at all costs. They are the devil in disguise. This is the easiest way to never get scammed by a buyer, or eBay. Always transfer your money straight to your bank account the minute it shows in your paypal account.

They can NOT take money from your bank account if they decide a case against you. The worst you lose this way is your paypal account. You cannot make changes to the account until you fix the negative balance. I thought about making a new account, but in the end I figured it would be easier to just pay the money.

As a seller I transfer all funds from PayPal to my bank as soon as I can. I sell all kinds of stuff on eBay but mostly vintage wristwatches. HAD one recent buyer say one of my watches was broken when it wasn't and accused me of being deceptive in the description of the watch.

The issue was the holes that take the pins needed a flanged pin and I offered it in the sale and he just didn't like the watch but said it was defective.

Since the listing said no refunds I refused to give one. When I made the listing that option was given by eBay. So eBay didn't even look at my listing and sided with the buyer and said I had to refund his money.

I said no and I don't care if they take me off as a seller cause I did everything right. After 2 weeks of back and forth emails eBay finally sided with me. EBay has become a pain in the butt for sellers so much so that I don't sell that often on it anymore.

Not to mention all the counterfeit products being sold on it and eBay doing absolutely nothing about it.

Also seems eBay goes out of its way to take down some of my listings saying they are prohibited but when I type in the search of my item I always find more. Now I sell most of my high end watches at a local auction house. It's safer but a little inconvenient. Oh yea, I also sell boxes that products came in. Collectors are usually the buyers of the boxes. Please read entire description of listings. Seems As is and no return is nothing to ebay Khali dabba bhejkar paise ka ghotala kar raha hai.

Koi sunne wala nahi hai. Ebay sellers have multiple accounts. Those Chinese websites sellers have more accounts than they can handle. Ebay sellers login times a day but those Chinese Webs can only login 1 time a day! However a lot of those Chinese web sellers have accounts in Ebay and Amazon too. I agree Chinese webs sellers are more targeted by conmans because these is a chinese web after all and the control is more lenient.

The chinese webs are not invested in catching culprits, conmans and scams. It is a painful in the ass because they process everything very much longer and not user friendly than Ebay and Amazon. The customer services in these Chinese are just wasting your time because they cannot do anything and will always end up asking you to submit the claims or reports yourself.

These reports and claims are very difficult to submit and must upload picture files to prove! Then after hard time submitting the reports or claims, you have to wait again for weeks to months for these Chinese webs creeps officer to crawl in and handle.

I have stop buying from these Chinese webs after months of nightmares transactions. Ebay is actually a lot better than those Chinese online sales. The first few transactions very cheap but were scams. There were so many problems, seller delay shipping out, shipping takes more than 1 month, never send, wrong items, defective items, Ebay has less problems than these Chinese sites.

A better site would be Amazon. I bought one product from ebay 2 months back and i got faulty and used product and i raised concern but still my case is not resolved yet even i have spent rs more to courier the product back. I have had items marked as damaged, I fully described the damage, I had a listing that said no refunds, and ebay forced me to provide a refund because the buyer was not happy with the item.

I also learned not to sell out of country, I shipped an item to Croatia, as soon as the item left the US there was no tracking info, the buyer said he never received it and I had to pay up. The buyer did the same to another seller, we told ebay, and they refused to refund our money, all they would do was ban the buyer. Hye friends my self appaswami kutti and i was cheated by a air ambulance service provider named air ambulance aviation, the owner name of this co.

He is having plenty of branch. Actually i wanted to shift my dad at Washington. Dr's are refer him to transfer for treatment in Washington. At the time of booking of stretcher they are said to me we will transfer your dad within 3 OR 4 days, but they took 13 days to transfer to my dad.

But on the day shifting will process that same day my dad is expire. And i told them please reverse back my money to me. But they refused we never refund money in such condition. And i lost my whole USD. I am unable to understand. I am inquired about him in the market then i know he a no.

He is making fool to people on the name of transfer to patient by flight. Actually he is a male nurse. I have all the document with proof i will take action against him. I don't think anyone can understand what you're saying, I got lost after you said the air ambulance thing lol. I paid good money for it as I wanted something in new or close to new condition.

They indicated it was a display model and could have a could minor scratches on it. The phone I received was not that. The screen was burned, the bezel paint was worn off, etc. They left a note in their package asking to settle off ebay if there were any concerns.

It was nicely worded - something to the effect of "If you have any issues, please contact us direct. It takes much longer to go through the ebay return process". Trying to be a decent person, I went with it. Advised them of the issues, etc. Then they told me I needed to pay return shipping and told me where to send it. Red flags started going up everywhere. I am on this site reading about scams because it felt like that was the road I was heading down. I just submitted through ebay and re-iterated they wanted to settle out of ebay and I was trying to work with them, but since they sent me a damaged product other than what was described I shouldnt have to pay the return shipping.

I am going with a different seller. I dont know if ebay would have protected me if I showed the email history we had going on, but people can be horrible in general. As a very limited seller, I had someone tell me they never received the item. Thank God I got tracking and delivery confirmation on it. I also had someone buy something that was fully described as broken, non functioning and we didnt know what was wrong with it. Initally, they wanted to know what didnt and did work on it because they needed a certain piece from it.

I advised I did not know and thats why I was selling it. After receiving, they tried to say they were returning it because we didnt package it well and it got damaged due to the lack of packaging. I turned from nice to ahole. I called them out on all of the written details, advised it was wrapped in bubble wrap personally and that in order for it to literally pierce through the shipping box outside of the bubble wrap, it must have been handled extremely rough in shipping.

Ebay sided with me. They told the buyer to go through the insurance. The buyer suddenly became very nice when asking for the insurance information. Fortunately, I havent been scammed yet, but I feel like Ive had more close calls than I should of. How about one where they buy the item and a month to 3 months later they issue a chargeback to their bank, where they keep your item AND take back their money. No item returned, and no money back on my acc yet as of Dec 26, The scammer did not want to pay return postage because they did not fit so she tore off a bow claiming that they were posted damaged.

I told her to return them but also told her that I knew what she was up to. I am not a store but eBay is taking her side because she is the buyer. She posted negative feedback and eBay's policies support these scummy buyers, never the sellers. I do not recommend eBay. I'm in almost the same boat as you.

I'm just about done with ebay as far as selling is concerned. Nearly positive feedback as a buyer and a seller and now there is a negative feedback from some lady who didn't seem to understand that when you refund through ebay it can take a few business days.

I posted it on ebay and it sold in less than an hour. It was late afternoon so it didn't actually go out to the buyer until the next day. A few days go by and I start receiving messages from the buyer asking where her phone is, etc. I messaged her back that if she didn't receive it in a day or two to let me know and I will look into it.

She kept messaging me asking where her phone is every day for the next few days. Did she not read my messages that I was away from home and wouldn't be back for a couple more days? I told her quite calmly that I will look into it as soon as I get home from vacation and that I haven't forgotten about it and that I would get back to her promptly. She is becoming a pain in the ass at this point. I get home and there is a notice in my mail box that I have a package to pick up along with the rest of my held mail.

By this point she is freaking out and incessantly messaging me for her money back. The item never left the post office because it was badly damaged either in transit or while still at the post office and someone there stuck it with the rest of my held mail.

I message the buyer back and explain to her what happened. Included photos of the damaged box and phone. I initiated the refund process through ebay so I can get my fees refunded at least. If I refunded her directly through paypal she would have received her money faster but I went through ebay. Her refund sat in a pending status in paypal for several days and I was receiving borderline abusive messages from her asking me if I have a problem and what is wrong with me.

I told her I am not a bank and I don't know how I can help her with that and to have a little patience her refund has been sent. At this point I filed a report on the buyer with ebay due to this and her incessant messages. She left me negative feedback stating it took too long to receive her refund ebay fault and that I never shipped the iphone despite proof that I did.

I even sent her screen shots of proof that I refunded her money. I received absolutely no support from ebay. Wrote to them exactly what happened and the only thing they told me I could do was to leave a limited comment under the negative feedback. I feel I bent over backwards for this lady but ebay doesn't even care. I had to laugh when I read this article. Maybe it's because this article was written over three years ago and things have changed a lot at ebay. Even if the transaction happened entirely on ebay and paypal, seller protection against fraudulent claims is a fraud in itself.

Oh sure, you can call ebay support and jump through a ton of hoops and file appeals to your hearts content, but I've NEVER seen a seller win a case that protected them from a fraudulent return. And, I've been following this issue closely on their community forums for a while.

In the third scam "The Bait-and-Switch Refund" you can't be more false. Shipping insurance isn't going to protect you at all unless you can prove the item was damaged by the shipping carrier. So, how does that help in this situation when the buyer damaged the item, or the item was switched with a damaged item by the buyer? Is the author advising ebay sellers to defraud the shipping carrier?

If so, that's very bad advice. Do not do that! It will do nothing to protect you from a return that's within the 30 day buyer protection window. Ebay will require you to refund the buyer no matter what you provide in defense against fraud and abuse. If you don't act within 30 days, ebay will ban your account and paypal will either freeze your account or pull the funds directly out of your linked bank account. There's no recourse here at all because all return requests are completely out of the control of the seller.

The bottom line is, the seller is totally at the mercy of the buyer's honesty at ebay. And, as more and more dishonest buyers learn how easy it is to get free stuff, the more risky selling on ebay will become.

Is not true, ebay and paypal are different companies so they can scam people in the internet while the seller and the buyer fight, they get rich. They should be investigated by the state department, is like the Mafia,. I have just had exactly the same thing happen to me. I was immediately suspicious as the return request was for a 'buy it now' listing for silver - so I phoned eBay for advice.

A charming young woman assured me I would be covered under their buyer protection program if the buyer returned a fist full of 2 pence coins and strongly advised me to accept the return in spite of silence from the buyer who had merely clicked a 'not as described' button.

When I received my return I had my partner video film the package showing the tracking number the buyer used together with the buyer's return address. I then opened it to discover a pile of worthless junk old coins completely different to the silver ones I sent out.
